Problems: AX.25(017), PPP (0.1.5), and Linux 1.1.6

Problems: AX.25(017), PPP (0.1.5), and Linux 1.1.6

Post by Derek Atki » Sun, 24 Apr 1994 09:16:04



I have been trying to get AX.25 and PPP to work together in the 1.1.6
Linux kernel.

The problem, as far as I can tell, is that the header file
net/inet/dev.h has been replicated as include/linux/netdevice.h.
However, it was not completely duplicated.  In these header files is a
definition for "struct device", however the definitions are not the
same.  The definition in netdevice.h does not include function
pointers to add_arp and queue_xmit.

But wait, there's more!  The ax.25 header file (I forget which one
offhand) still wants to include "dev.h", so I get a multiply-defined
structure.  

If I remove dev.h (and replace it with a file that just contains one
line:
        #include <linux/netdevice.h>

The multiple defines go away, but ppp has a problem with the device
structure, since it no longer has the add_arp and queue_xmit members.

If I add those members into the definition in netdevice.h, all
networking seems to stop (I haven't verified this, yet, I plan to this
weekend).

So, I guess my question is has anyone gotten AX.25 017 and PPP to work
together in a Linux 1.1.6 (or higher) kernel??  If so, how?

Thanks!

   I have been trying to get AX.25 and PPP to work together in the 1.1.6
   Linux kernel.

As an update, with Linux 1.1.8, AX.25 017, and PPP 0.2.1, I was
able to get everything working.

1. PPP & X.25 (not AX.25)

Someone running PPP over X.25 ?


Thanks,
